"The GR1 is my favorite backpack on the planet.” - Andy, Huckberry co-founder

This heavy-hitting backpack has gone through a few iterations, each with its own unique approach to what is now a modern carry classic. For this GR1, GORUCK built the familiar silhouette out of waxed duck canvas and Red Wing leather, giving it the kind of construction our grandfathers would be proud of. Here’s why we love it so much:

  • Special Forces-Grade Materials: YKK zippers perform in Middle East sandstorms, and the waxed canvas outer is tough and fully rainproof
  • Badass American Construction: Every American-made bag is strength-tested and ships with an ironclad Lifetime Guarantee
  • Bombproof Laptop Compartment: The separate compartment keeps your laptop secure and flush against your back, while the false bottom protects your laptop when set your bag down
  • Inspired by Special Forces Medical Rucks: Inspired by military rucks, it opens flat for easy packing while internal mesh pockets keeps your EDC secure
